  • New Hornets coach James Borrego said Tuesday that he's yet to decide on a starting lineup, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. This could just be typical coach-speak, but Borrego directly stated that four of the five starting spots will be an open competition, with only Kemba Walker locked in at point guard. Kidd-Gilchrist should be the favorite to slot in at one of the forward spots, but it's possible the Hornets could go in another direction in an effort to spark what was a slightly-above-league-average offense last season. Kidd-Gilchrist has been one of the better and more versatile defensive players in the league since going No. 2 overall in 2012, but his offensive game has lagged behind, and he's demonstrated minimal improvement on that end of the floor over the past six seasons. Kidd-Gilchrist averaged 9.2 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in 2017-18, but his complete lack of an outside game -- 36 career 3PA -- remains an impasse in the modern NBA.

  • Kidd-Gilchrist managed four points (2-3 FG), three rebounds, one steal and one block during the Hornets' 119-93 win over the Pacers on Tuesday. The former Kentucky Wildcat was not a factor during the Hornets' season finale, as he scored only four points. Kidd-Gilchrist's production has decline since his 2015-16 season when he averaged 12.7 points per game and, in addition, comes with a heavy price tag of $13 million over the next two years. The former lottery pick added 9.2 points and 4.1 rebounds in 74 games played this season.

  • Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) will play during Wednesday's contest against the Cavaliers. Kidd-Gilchrist missed morning shootaround as a result of food poisoning, but has apparently recovered enough throughout the day to lace up for Wednesday's tilt. Over his past four games, he's averaged 6.0 points and 4.8 rebounds in 21.3 minutes.

  • Kidd-Gilchrist missed morning shootaround as a result of food poisoning and is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Cavaliers, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports. More word on Kidd-Gilchrist's condition should arrive as the day goes on, though there seems to be a fair chance he doesn't take the floor. If that ends up being the case, Jeremy Lamb, Treveon Graham and Dwayne Bacon are candidates to see extra run.

  • Kidd-Gilchrist had five points (2-8 FG, 1-1 FT) and three rebounds in 29 minutes during Monday's 108-94 loss to the 76ers. Kidd-Gilchrist has struggled alongside Dwight Howard, who doesn't provide him with space on offense and gobbles up the vast majority of boards on defense. As a result, Kidd-Gilchrist is averaging a career-worst 4.2 rebounds per contest.
